Lament of the Stamper's Husband

Lament of the Stamper's Husband A Poem for the Stamper's Spouse She learned to stamp on Monday. Her embossing was quite fine, She forgot to thaw out dinner, So we all went out to dine.

THE MAID HAS LEARNED TO STAMP!!! --Author Unknown-

My wish was to sell such wares at local craft fairs. Some health problems really slowed down the idea of starting a home-based business from scratch.
